New Mexico Workers’ Comp Attorneys On Your Side

Put an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side today so you can get the benefits you need and deserve.

Medical documentation is a crucial aspect of any workers’ compensation claim, but insufficient medical evidence is a common reason for denial of workers’ comp benefits. We have experience with many types of work injuries and can help ensure that you get the medical care and documentation you need to obtain benefits for your specific injury. Compensable work injuries include but are not limited to:
- Carpel tunnel and repetitive stress injuries

- Back injuries
- Catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones
- Chemical burns and other burn injuries
- Hip, leg, knee and ankle injuries
- Foot and toe injuries
- Internal bleeding and other internal injuries
- Broken ribs, abdominal injuries and other injuries to the chest and torso

What If Someone Outside Of My Work Caused My Injury On The Job Or If I Got Injured Outside Of My Place Of Employment During My Work Hours?
If a third party (someone not your employer or a coworker) caused your injury or if you are injured while driving or delivering for your work, you may have grounds for a third-party personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. Third-party claims often lead to significantly more compensation than the benefits provided through workers’ comp. Additionally, grieving families may have grounds for a wrongful death claim if a third party’s negligence resulted in a fatal work accident. At Stiver Law, we can handle both your personal injury and workers’ compensation claim.
